Hope keeps us going. It doesn’t need to be reasonable or realistic to keep us going. It is more about our emotions than our circumstances.
We will run into trouble emotionally if our hopes are not realistic. Eventually we may give up hopes that are never fulfilled.
A wondrous thing about hope is that it can be fulfilled in truly surprising ways. Hope is about a desired future. It is fed by steps toward that future.
Take a look around at your present world. You will find things that will help you move toward that better future you desire. The circumstances may not be what you envisioned but the peace, joy and love that were at the core of your hope may be fulfilled as you move on one step at a time.
